I was walking through the streets one day, when I bumped into a familiar face. He had changed so much that I barely recognized him from a single glance. It was James Valentine. "Hey Samantha, how's it going?" I tried to stay strong under the pressure and said quickly "yeah everythings great, what about you?" James said with a kind smile that once warmed my heart, but now turns it ice cold "yeah great, you seeing anyone?" My heart lurched as I stuttered "N-no, not really. You?" James shook his head and said "nah, who needs love anyways". As we went seperate ways he said to me "well good luck with the future. I hope you will find someone who will treat you right". I sighed as I thought 'I thought I had' as I replied with "yeah, you too". I noticed he kept looking back at me, but I knew all hope was still lost.
Valentines Day came along, and I felt terrible all of the week before the day. On Valentines Day I felt I needed to be alone. It was only a year ago that James made me feel special, made me feel wanted, and loved me. But now he was just a cold memory that cracked my heart in two. I decided to go for a walk to let off some steam, and take my mind off of being alone on Valentines Day. I went to the park, where we first declared our love for one another. I walked the same route we did that warm summers day. I looked at the ducks for a while, trying my best to hold the tears back as I looked at the grassy field where we once rolled about as best friends.
I stood beneath the old oak tree, drooping sadly over me. I leant against the tree trunk, and slid down to the floor, my face in my hands as I burst into tears. "I thought I might find you here" a familair voice said softly nearby. I looked up, my face red from all the crying to see James standing tall, with a smile on his face. I got up and said "James, what are you doing here?" James said with a smile "I dunno, looking for you I guess". I burst into tears as I stood up quickly shouting angrily "I can't do this anymore, just leave me alone!" James said sweetly "what if I don't want to. I wish we could just be friends again, like old times". I said quietly "I can't, I either love you, or leave you. I cannot hold my feelings in around you. Right now I just want to hug you. I still love you, and I can't kill those feelings!" James said with an eager smile "then don't". I said with surprise "what?" James said once again "I said then don't". I said sadly "what do you mean". James said softly "come here". He held his arms out for a hug. I slowly walked towards him, as he gently wrapped his arms around me. His chin leant on my shoulder as he whispered longingly into my ear "will you wait for me?"
